Stanley

I began to feel so sorry for poor little lonesome Millie that I knew I just had to find her a little friend, so little Stanley came to life this weekend. I am not sure if Millie likes him as he is a little goofy looking but I think his charm will win her over!

We spent this weekend doing a lot of walking and I have the sore muscles to prove it. The weather was just so lovely and sunny and my hubby took some real good pics. I think this Bald Eagle picture is one of his best ones so far, he sat there for the longest time and was very co-operative while a strange human stood below clicking away with a camera. We also saw these wonderful Northern Shoveler Ducks, looking at their beaks I can see where they got their name from. Near the end of our walk a whole flock of geese took off and came right over the top of us, thankfully they didn't give us any surprises. When I saw this pic I was amazed at all the different positions their wings were in. Our daughter said it would make a real good jigsaw puzzle!

So that was our lovely weekend, I hope yours was fun too!

Wonderful photography! Nice that you could go out and walk around in nature. Hope Millie will grow to love Stanley. He is a bit geeky looking. But that's not necessarily a bad thing!

Naaaw! I think that Stanley looks like he's off to the shops for a loaf of wholemeal and to pick up a script! Love him!
